You can help shape the new National Care Service in Scotland and represent people with cerebral palsy by joining the Scottish Government’s new Lived Experience Experts Panel.
Following the introduction of the National Care Service (Scotland) Bill to the Scottish Parliament on 20 June 2022, the Scottish Government is now developing a new National Care Service (NCS) in a bid to achieve changes to the system of community health and social care in Scotland.
The Scottish Government have committed to establishing a functioning National Care Service by 2026.
As part of this process, the Scottish Government wants to co-design the new National Care Service by working alongside the people who use and deliver health and social care services, and the organisations which represent them.
Join the Lived Experience Experts Panel
Applications are now open to take part in the Lived Experience Experts Panel. This is open to anyone living in Scotland who has views on how the future NCS should look.
The Lived Experience Experts Panel is a group of people who will help to design the NCS by taking part in different kinds of research and design activities, including:
- being interviewed
- helping come up with ideas about what changes the Scottish Government might make
- helping the Government understand what their evidence is telling them
- helping the Government understand if the suggestions made will bring about the changes needed within health and social care that people have asked for
